I saw “backstage” Beijing on this tour. We walked through a park that was in the middle of skyscrapers and traffic. With a small entrance I would never have realized it was there. The noise of the city fell away and we walked on a lakeside path as we watched Beijingers exercise, sing, play music, engage in a heated Chinese chess game, and playing a friendly game of cards. We also stepped into the hidden neighborhood behind the monoliths of the apartment buildings that face the street. We saw the neighborhood senior center, health center, building where they park their bicycles and scooters, and the spot where they accept all the deliveries when people are away at work. I loved seeing a bit of real life in Beijing and would never have done it without this tour.
Very personable and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed everything we did. Wish it were not so hot-or we would have enjoyed it even more.! Thank you for providing such great experiences. We have recommended Context to many people we know because of our experience.
